2024 SAME STEM/Engineering & Construction Camps


Attending the SAME/Marine Corps Engineering & Construction Camp has been one of the most life-changing and interesting experiences I have gone through. Every day, there were so many new and exciting feats to accomplish and concepts to learn. Through the duration of the camp, I was part of the Bravo Squad. It was led by three amazing mentors and throughout the week, team-building exercises brought us together as a group and strengthened our teamwork. We may have not been the top team, but we were constant contenders and had great morale and inspiration no matter what. -Gabriel Goudie, 2021 Camp Participant
